Another peek — just a peek! — at the work underway for the upcoming Tales of the Uncanny – N-Man & Friends: A Naut Comics History Vol. 1.
Among the multitude of logos — company logos, pulp cover logos, comicbook cover logos, character logos and more — that the multi-talented Mark Bilokur has been creating for this project, this slightly revised logo for our publisher in this venture is among my favorites.
I drew up three different Naut Comics characters as possible ‘readers’ for our project logo (the other two were The Fury and Queep). Running them past Mark, co-editor Tim Stout, and book designer Katherine Roy, we all agreed the N-Man ‘reader’ portrait worked the best, and with About Comics‘s publisher Nat Gertler‘s kind permission, Mark worked up a surprising variety of variations on this image and the About Comics traditional logo.
It took a bit of back-and-forth with Nat, who was properly sensitive about preserving the key elements of his name-branding of his imprint, but we all settled on what I’m showing you here today.
More to come, as we move closer to solicitation time on this 340+ page book!
Coming in December 2010 from About Comics.
